The understanding of smoke control can be a complex subject and determining the smoke requirements of buildings will often require the use of a fully qualified fire engineer. Smoke control systems are becoming more commonplace in schemes due to the benefits they can offer their clients. Clearly architects and designers should have an understanding of these schemes and the importance of the various elements.

Fire Risk Consultancy Limited have produced this one day seminar which will give those attending a greater understanding of smoke control schemes. We have developed a method which will assist you in determining the requirements of a SHEVS system. This will give architects and designers an insight into smoke control.
